Calista means "beautiful" and certainly lives up to its meaning. It's a gorgeous name!

Calista is a beautiful exotic name, and nobody seems to have it. I wish it was in use.

The name "Calista" is connected to "beauty" beacuse of the Greek word "kalos", which means "beauty".

In the series "Ally McBeal" Calista Flockhart plays the role of Ally McBeal.

If I have a daughter, I want to name her Calista or Kalysta.

My daughter is Callista. We spelled it this way because her given nickame is Callie. I regret not spelling it the traditonal way with just 1 L. Everyone, and I mean, everyone loves this name. It was hard to find a name for her sister when she was born, because nothing can stand up to the beauty of Callista. But, Sienna was born and I think they go well!

My name is Calista. I adore it. I usually go by Calla.

Very pretty name, but I prefer the (less common) spelling with two l's: Callista.

I love Calista. It's one of my favorite girl names. If I have a daughter, I might name her Calista. It's just so lovely.

I think this name is very, very beautiful on a girl. I also love the nickname Calie, and the one 'l' spelling. My twin girls are going to be named Delaney and Calista.

When I was younger and Ally McBeal was on, my sister and I always saw Calista's name in the credits. I grew up thinking that it was pronounced ca-LEES-ta instead of ca-LIS-ta. Now that I've learned the "proper" way to pronounce it, I don't like it as much. I think. I don't know. I keep going between liking it and not liking it. It's okay, I suppose. Lol.

I love this name... the nickname Callie is also cute.

My name is Calista and I love it so much... my name is not popular around here and that's why I love it more.

Hello all, I love the name and the meaning, but do not like Cali as a nickname. So I went with Kellista :) So she can go by Kelli if she likes.

I love this name and I love the nickname Calla! This name is so unique without being obnoxious.

Blessed with a little girl, we wanted to name her "Callie" (rhymes with Sally). However, we decided that Calista looked more professional on a resume. Also, we live right next to California, so it's probable that she may live in "Cali" someday. So, Calista it was. At home it's always been "Callie", but at school it's Calista (in her own 7yo words) "Because everyone says Calista is so beautiful!".

We chose this spelling of the name because it is most popular spelling and the name is most commonly associated with actress Calista Flockhart.
